ACT NOW: State Legislature to Hold Public Hearing on Bills Defunding Planned Parenthood


 
 
This Wednesday, the Assembly Health Committee will hold a public hearing in the State Capitol on two bills that that will further defund Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin (PPWI), the state’s largest abortion provider. Authored by Representative Andre Jacque (R-De Pere), Assembly Bill (AB) 310 and Assembly Bill (AB) 311 together will eliminate approximately $7.5 million in public funding from PPWI. 

Pro-Life Wisconsin (PLW) State Director Dan Miller and Legislative Director Matt Sande will attend the public hearing. Sande will offer public testimony. Casey Mattox, senior counsel with Alliance Defending Freedom and a national expert on Planned Parenthood’s fraud and abuse of taxpayer dollars, will also testify along with Sue Thayer, former Planned Parenthood of the Heartland clinic manager.

Assembly Bill 310 would redirect federal Title X family planning funds away from organizations that perform or refer for abortions to public entities including state, county, and local health departments and clinics. Currently, more than $3 million annually in Title X funds are granted directly to PPWI. 

Assembly Bill 311 would dramatically reduce PPWI’s Medicaid reimbursement rate for contraceptive drugs, paying them at the actual cost they pay for these drugs, not the artificially inflated rate they and other family planning clinics are getting now. This will eliminate $4.5 million from PPWI.

In 2011, PLW was the lead organization in defunding PPWI of $1 million annually in Title V block grant funding, forcing the closure of 5 of their birth control/abortion referral clinics. With your continued help, we will close them all!
